Flowers around Matienzo

The tables below have been compiled by Penny Corrin. Assistance and/or advice and/or more photos have been provided by Juan Corrin, Linda Dickinson, Peter Smith, Patrick Warren and Terry Whitaker.
Tables are presented in order of English name, English generic name, Latin name and colour. (124 records. Updated 24/6/2012)

It can be quite difficult to identify some of the flowers around Matienzo. The area is at the periphery of "Britain and Northern Europe" and is also partly "Alpine". In addition, some Matienzo wild flowers appear to be subtly different to their "Northern European" counterparts.
The photos box on the right of each table has been given a colour relating to the main colour of the flower. A limited palette has been used and certain shades have been included (in brackets) within the given colour, ie red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple (mauve, indigo, violet), pink and white (cream). This flower table feature may be of some assistance, but certain plants may have flowers of more than one colour and there may be a confusing gradation through purple to blue, mauve to pink, and white to yellow, etc.
